Bucket List  

Become an Entrepreneur

When I decided to become a business major, it was because I had my heart set on owning my own bridal shop. That is still a dream of mine, and I would also like to be a freelance wedding planner. One of my hobbies is making designs with my Cricut cutting machine, so I may become an entrepreneur earlier than expected and start a small business!


Travel More in Europe

I was able to explore Milan, Italy as part of my study abroad experience in Italy in February 2020, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, my study abroad experience was cut short and I wasn't able to visit many other Italian cities or countries, so I would like to finish the trip I started!
